MAN DOWN! MAN DOWN! The magically delicious woman who spawned Keyshia Cole enjoyed a little ATL night life on Friday at a mansion party for Seattle Seahawks player Deon Grant and Charles Mathes Jr. I hope security checked her purse on her way out.
Frankie has EBT Black Carpet correspondent written all over her. The only time I tune into the channel is to admire Terrence J.’s shoe game on 106 and watch re-runs of The Steve Harvery Show, but I could be persuaded to give the network more of my precious ratings if they gave my girl some real solo face time.
Close your eyes and magine what the expression on Beyaki’s face would be like if they tapped Frankie F. Baby to interview her for a press junket. Amazing ain’t it? Hit up Genius Hates Company for more flicks from the party.
Journeys In Crunk was a feature on C+D that fizzled back ’05 when I was getting a whopping 20 hits per day [and 17 of them were me refreshing the page] but after reading an anonymous email this morning I would like to try to breath life into it again. If you have any crazy stories about a celebrity or general fuckery-laden pictures you have snapped, feel free to send them in!
OK, this is probably way too old to print but I realized this morning that no one would get more of a kick out of this than you.
I was the writer on the Keyshia Cole reality show reunion show and one of the requirements of Frankie and Neffie was to have a full bottle of Patron in their dressing room when they arrived. Which was all gone less than an hour after they got there. In addition to her Tourette-like outbursts of “Tyra Mail!,” one of her other favorites (though she didn’t do it onstage) is “Deez balls, deez nuts!” She would loudly proclaim this at random while backstage listening to the show before she was brought out.
For example, if Keyshia was saying something about how she has a lot of responsibilities, Frankie’s response would be “yeah you responsible for deez balls, deez nuts!” The drunken fuckery of Frankie and Neffie was almost unbearable. But I needed the check.
OK, I just had to get this story of America’s First Family off my chest.
By the way, the category name “This family has got to be that fist” comes courtesy of Big Mama in ‘Soul Food.’ Thank you and please drive around for your total.
Keyshia Cole hit up Good Morning America to scare white people bright and early with her yodeling shenanigans. I wish that the version of Kesh with the kool-aid hued hair will show up and show out every now and then. Could you imagine the faces of the GMA crew if her “sister” came out in the middle of the set waving around her glock and puffing on a Black N’ Mild while KeyLoLo vocalized? That’s solid gold! Man down! Holla! Tyra mail!
The Essence Music Festival wrapped up its 14th year on Sunday in the Louisiana Superdome. Many people made their way down to The Big Easy for the musical performances and free empowerment seminars.
The New Orleans based festival celebrates black music and culture and moved to Houston in 2006 after Hurricane Katrina smashed New Orleans. It returned in 2007, and organizers say “Essence is now re-establishing its place in the city.”
If you covered the festival on your own blog or attended any of the events, feel free to post your links or talk about your experience in the comment section.
I see you looking, with your looking ass [his words, not mine]. Via press release:
First-time cover star Young Jeezy, who is best known for telling stories of his dangerous past in his music, opens up about his family life and his rumored relationship with R&B songstress Keyshia Cole. In a one-on-one interview with Vibe Senior Editor Benjamin Meadows-Ingram, Jeezy, who has two platinum albums and a current hit single featuring Kanye West (“Put On”), speaks candidly about everything from music to politics:
Although he recently endorsed Senator Barack Obama, Jeezy comments on meeting presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain [on the set of SNL]: “No disrespect to my man Barack but I f— with John McCain. He greeted me like a G…The fact that he acknowledged me was crazy . . . I like Barack, but at the same time I wanted to see what McCain was talking about.”
Jeezy’s comments on his rumored relationship with Keyshia Cole: “To be honest, it was more what she wanted. She was cool and we had a cool friendship. The media made it out to be something crazy. We kicked it. We hung out. Thing is, you can’t be cool with somebody you wanna be cool with [without the media thinking it’s a relationship] . . . I was grown enough to tell her, Look baby, that isn’t what it is right now.” 
Jeezy talks about his career-threatening vocal injury: “When I first got into music, nobody taught me how to record or how to perform so I just did it with all my heart. I overdid it and it ripped my shit damn near in half.”
 He also purportedly mentions in the interview that Keyshia popped the question to Mr. Trap of Die and offered to buy an engagement ring but he turned her down.
Lil’ Wang, Keyshia Cole, T-Pain, and Akon hit the stage at the Bank Atlantic Center this past weekend in Sunrise, Florida. Jesus be a sound check. Those must have been some very brave fans to endure that show with KeyLoLo’s yodeling for Scooby snacks and T-Wayne + Akon’s vocalizing. And you already know the evening wouldn’t be complete without a guest appearance by DJ Khaled’s annoying ass screaming about being the best.
Did anybody out there in Crunkland attend the show?
What’s up Crunkland! It’s me Xilla the supreme cheater eater. I’ve come over to correct some niggatry left over from the EBT awards. Apparently I was wrong when I said Keyshia Cole’s mother Frankie, couldn’t read. Today on V103′s Porsche Fox show Frankie said she was in the process of writing a short book about 77 pages long about the effects of drugs and how she overcame her addiction.
We can almost guarantee the book will be full of one and two syllable words and lots of nice pictures, colored in crayon for our reading enjoyment. Maybe she might get help writing the book from her 23 year old boyfriend she’s been dating. Now that’s a sex tape I would pay to see.
Celebs know that if they are hungry for a little grub and paparazzi attention that they can also make a trip to famous eatery Mr. Chow to satisfy their appetites. “Singers” Solange and Keyshia Cole were both spotted exiting the restaurant on Wednesday night. Busta Rhymes, Jermaine Dupri [I hope it wasn't after midnight], and Nelly were also caught by the flashing lights.
